IPv6 Emulation

As far as I know, my hardware and software support IPv6, but my ISP only provides IPv4.

Is there some way I could emulate (if that's the right term) IPv6, such as using a web proxy, to actually verify that my hardware and software work properly with IPv6?

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.5, if that's relevant.

You run a recent Linux distro, I can with a fair level of confidence say your good to go with IPv6.

If you want to test it Google your self an IPv6 Tunnel Broker, that way you can get an IPv6 connection over your existing IPv4 only link.
